The Tweed Ride aims to promote bike riding in urban areas and proceeds for the ride benefits Power To Be Adventure Society, which helps children with disabilities explore nature, no matter their mobility limitations.

Participants are expected to dress to impress in traditional vintage-style English clothing – and in particular, tweed.

The ride will start and end at the Vancouver Club and will essentially be a huge loop of the city. Below is a map of the route they plan on taking:
